Aston Martin presents fantastic Vanquish S Volante

Aston Martin has issued the following press release:


Building on the heritage and success of our flagship Grand Tourer comes the Aston Martin Vanquish S – bringing improved engine power, enhanced dynamics and all new styling to create a car of unprecedented ability.

Available in stunning Volante form.


Equipped with an uprated 6.0 V12 engine producing 603 PS. Add to this an 8-speed Touchtronic III Transmission, Quad-exhaust tailpipes, and revised inlet manifolds for increased engine airflow, our ultimate supercar offers supreme performance feel and a truly unforgettable driving experience.


Cloaked in a suit of carbon, Vanquish isn’t just constructed from carbon-fibre, it’s also styled with it. A new aerodynamic focused design features carbon fibre 2x2 twill front splitter and rear diffuser, improving high speed stability and accentuating exterior styling.

Inside the cabin, Vanquish S delights with interior features such as Filograph quilt design options, Bang & Olufsen audio and the AMi III Infotainment system with all new satellite navigation.


Vanquish S embodies the very essence of Aston Martin and yet redefines each core element to create a machine of amplified sporting capability; a combination of unbound craftsmanship and power that comes together in utmost harmony.
